This is more than a little “a friend of a friend told me something,” but the latest rumoured release date for AMD’s new Ryzen chips – the aggressively-named ‘threadripper’ series – will be around August 10.
This latest tidbit of news comes to us via Kitguru and Guru3D, and is based upon word-of-mouth from an online retailer. This is the date they’re expecting to start selling the part.
This means that we’ll be getting Threadripper and Intel’s i9 7920X processor in the same month.
Now that’s competition – welcome back!
